From the evangelist:
"Jesse Helms, my friend and long-time senator from my home state of
North Carolina, was a man of consistent conviction to conservative
ideals and courage to faithfully serve God and country based on
principle, not popularity or politics.
In the tradition of Presidents Jefferson, Adams and Monroe -- who also
passed on July 4th -- it is fitting that such a patriot who fought for
free markets and free people would die on Independence Day. As we
celebrate the birth of our nation, I thank God for the blessings we
enjoy, which Senator Helms worked so hard to preserve.
Over three decades in the United States Congress, Senator Helms was a
loyal and effective leader on behalf of our State, with whom I
connected during times of national crisis. He was the first person to
call me when President Reagan was shot, even before it was reported as
Senator Helm's wife, Dot; their three children; and seven
grandchildren are in my thoughts and prayers as they honor his
legendary life and extraordinary legacy."
